comment Outdoor activities in San Francisco when it's misty and raining?
I live North of the city and I really love the redwoods on foggy mornings. Try getting out to Muir Woods, maybe. OR, if you're feeling really adventurous, drive the hour North and go hit Point Reyes National Seashore. It's beautiful there all the time, and I'm particularly smitten on a foggy morning.

comment How do people safely trek in polar bear country?
I thought I was adventurous, backpacking in snow and in deserts. But there is no way I'm going backpacking in polar bear country. The answer to your question is "no", it is not safe. I really hope this was a theoretical question.

comment Is buying an expensive sleeping bag better?
It was only 50 degrees F and you woke up shaking? I think you should expect it to get much colder while camping. In fact, I don't think you should ever expect it to be WARMER than 50 degrees F while camping.
