I can tell you what the weather will be like in October...
Below freezing with a 60MPH steady wind. It's not so bad once hypothermia sets in, but you do gotta watch out for the occasional cow blown in from the field next to the campsite. Think "tumbleweed" but with a cow. Tumblecow if you will...
However, this will be balanced nicely by the blast-furnace quality fire Turbs will have going, where he will reduce 900 pounds of premium hardwood firewood to a cup and a half of a very fine, grey powder each night. Turbs also uses the fire to signal the International Space Station, and it has the secondary function of melting down the aluminum cans for easy transport home. Between the two, you can remain quite comfortable if you adopt a "rotisserie spin" at about 2 rpm.
Ethanol-based antifreeze is recommended, however too much will cause you to wander around in only a t-shirt blabbering on about how "its not that cold!". If you drive a diesel, you will be well served to remember to plug it in at night so it will start the next day, lest you be trapped till the spring thaw, which I've been informed that Amana is planning on having one in 2019.
