Lost Lake trail clearing w/ overnighter?

The trail clearing for the Lost Lake run (which isn't until Aug 23rd) has a volunteer trail-clearing event beforehand (Saturday, Aug 2) to prepare for the race. Kenton, Meredyth and I all signed up to do it this year (with the incentive of having our entry fee waived), but they need all hands on deck to get ready! Come on out and join us! The website says that we are to meet at the Bear Creek fire station (mile 6 Seward Hwy)  at 9 am on Saturday. If we'd like to spend the night in Seward (or on the way someplace? suggestions?) we can meet Friday night then camp out together. Otherwise leave early Saturday morning by 6:30, do the clearing, and possibly spend the night on Saturday instead. Questions/Comments?

items recommended to bring along, taken from website:

Plastic or metal tined hay rake or a metal yard rake (lawn rakes don’t work, not worth bringing), gloves, Bug repellant, bug netting, Long Pants and long sleeves, Snack food, Water, Ear plugs, and a gas-powered weed whacker if you have one

    I'm on the trail clearing roster too. I've always made a long day of driving there and back in the same day. Camping Friday night is a great idea, I'm in, maybe climb Mt Marathon Friday evening or after the dinner on Saturday.

    I did not get my race entry waived (missed those slots) but am going to the clean up festivities. I don't know how I'll work the logistics, depends on weather and how long the clean-up takes; because of training obligations I'll most likely drive down early Saturday and potentially drive back that same day.
