I will definitely come say hi if you're still there when I arrive. What is your job down there?
Don't bet on seeing any stars in October. The sun will occasionally dip below the horizon in early October, but not far enough for the stars to come out. I think. When I was down here in October 2007, I was always asleep in the early hours, so I'm not absolutely sure, but I doubt it.
As for taking a dip in the ocean - the Kiwis held a polar plunge about a week ago, but that's no small feat. It takes them a couple days to chip out enough ice to get to the water.
And I'm an electrician.
See you in October.
