im driving from minnesota to california on the last day of october.

here's the scenario: i am on a tight budget, therefore im planning on roughing it at the end of the day, preferably campgrounds. but im afraid the weather temperature might be unbearable at night despite my subzero sleeping bag and 3 season tent.

also, i will be driving my newly aquired beat up car - 94 civic. i will get it minimaly tuned up for the trip, but im a bit apprehensive driving through higher elevations.
