You deserve a big hub from everybody for that nightmare.

Would it work if you tightly taped the pole where it split?

Well, there's one section of the pole that's split right down the middle with the cord still attached (it's bowed and looks kind of like a wiper-blade now). I believe I can still thread it through the hole in the tent where it goes (especially if I duct tape it together like you said)...I just wonder how it will hold up to a strong wind.

I don't think the tent itself is that crappy...I really don't think any tent could have held up to the storm. At the end of the day, it was a freakin' TENT in a S. FL never stood a chance!

Thanks everybody for the kind offers to help me out, but I believe I'll be okay as long as I bring a backup. But I appreciate the gestures nonetheless!

cajun queen has the right idea, put some duct tape tightly around the tent pole, that should hold it through monday.

That is awesome!!!!

How much is a replacement pole? If not too much I can grab you one to save you the trip. I go by Bass Pro every day and a freaking Dicks Sporting goods. I am going to the dollar store after work so it would be right there. I can pick you one up if you like?

marky, muleldy, c-mamma, thanks for your help/sympathy! I'm a little more at ease about it now...I'm borrowing a co-worker's tent for a backup and I'm sure it's decent since he takes it to the mudhole probably once a month. I'm still going to try to use mine first, that way I'll know if it's worth hanging onto and also I'll decrease the risk of frigging up/losing parts to my friend's tent. I think duct-tape will fix the pole-problem.

But again, I appreciate all the kind offers. Wanee-folk are the best!
