Packing question

Hi everyone,

Seeing the recent introductions go up on the yak board is getting me super stoked to meet you all in person!

I have a couple gear/logistical questions, mainly directed toward our instructors:

– Should we be able to pack our daypack and everything in it inside of our main pack? Or will we mostly travel with stuff in both?
– Any recommendations for type and quantity of backup (to a steripen) water treatment?
– What is a culturally appropriate and technically feasible way to share music with host families? If I bring a CD would there likely be a way to listen to it?

Thanks for clarifying
