The fact you haven’t heard of Trangia is enough for me to leave you to it. Best of luck.
The fact that the OP is more interested in discussing the merits of waterbottles with people on the other side of the planet rather than using the meet at North Wood this coming weekend as an opportunity to field test his already extensive portfolio of outdoor kit is enough for me aswell!
I guess you could make in a Trangia but I wouldn’t want to be the one cleaning it afterwards!
But is it not nicer to have a discussion with a dude from the other side of the world about water bottles, than getting verbally slapped by people living locally?
Yes you can make popcorn in a Trangia. You need to use the restrictor collar on the burner. And lift the pan to shake now and then.
When I was introduced to what is today called Bushcraft we could hardly read about it in books. Knowledge was passed on, in my case, from dad, then my own experimenting, then from my Saami soldiers. Then came Internet and messed up the World.....
I do not care if you are a troll ( I do not think so), as you bring in interesting queries.
DO NOT BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF.
Not sure what ou mean the sentence about the Bio Ethanol.
A Trangia is best used with Meths as it is called. Methanol, Ethanol, a mix of those. It does not matter, as long as the alcohol content is as close to 99% as possible.
(The alcohol type matters only if you plan to use it in the severe temperatures sometimes encountered in the Arctic. But with a few tricks even the standard ones are usable)
Bio Ethanol sounds nice, a couple of years maturing and it is very enjoyable?
As you are going to burn it, hopefully without spilling in your food container, just use the cheapest.
I have to be careful what i say, just in case someone snoops in and pecks my eyes out but i agree with them when i look at my self in the mirror.
