    Default Canister availibility

    Will I be able to find canisters for my pocket rocket often? Or will I need to carry 2 at a time?

    Don't know if you read this or not ... 5 years old, but it's a start.

    Q: Where are canisters available along the AT?
    ~
    While not as readily available as alcohol, with a bit of planning you should not have to worry about fuel availability. The following is a list of crossings which our members claim carries canister fuel. Any “real” outfitter will carry canister fuel. Call ahead if you are not sure.

    Yes: Walasi-Yi, NOC, Hot Springs, Erwin (I think Uncle Johnny has them), Damascus, Pearisburg, Daleville (near Troutville), Waynesboro, Williamstown, Harpers Ferry, Front Royal, Port Clinton, Pawling, Cornwall Bridge, Great Barrington, Kent, Manchester Center, Hanover, Pinkham Notch, Gorham, Caratunk, Monson

    Maybe (?): I'm pretty sure Delaware Water Gap has canisters.
    ~
    No: Duncannon, Boiling Springs, Unionville, Salisbury

    It says here that they're plentiful:

    I ordered the LT guide and the e2e guidebook. I'm sure I'll find all of the information I need in those. But they won't be shipped out until tomorrow. So, thanks for helping w/ these questions until I get 'em.

    I would think that, depending on how often you cook & your pace, you won't need that many canisters on the LT anyway. If you're concerned, you might maildrop one or two to yourself. Just make sure you do it well in advance of your trip, as they have to be sent ground delivery only.
