    Great outdoors prospector tent help!

    Picked up a Great outdoors prospector tent cheap, after roughly an hour and a half of extreme frustration and cussing profusely I came to the conclusion there has to be some poles missing(or I really shouldn't be allowed to pitch a tent) I was hoping with my fingers crossed that someone out there knows how the fuck this stupid tent goes up and would be so kind to share this with me to save not only my sanity but my partner too. (he's generally in the direct firing line of my anger/frustration) would be much appreciated

    Take a deep breath TG and wait for one of our refined southern gentlemen to offer assistance. Alternately go to a supplier and ask for a demo or instruction sheet.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    The company doesn't exist any more or there not making tents now, I tried google with no luck, I thought there has to someone out there that knows. It's one of those geodesic ones with a big font awning piece.

    That actually looks like a fairly normal configuration.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.

    Yeah thanks, looks like we're missing the straight poles for the front piece. May have to print this picture and put it in the bag with the tent to save future frustration.

    You don't happen to have the pole measurements? We have the 4 ends that make the curve at the front just missing the ones that go to the ground and across the top.

    I know Hayes in Invercargill sell all sorts of replacement piles and pieces. Well worth a call if no one local has parts. I'd expect they're pretty universal between brands if you know the length you're after.

    Thanks will give them a call, thought I might try a few camping shops to see if anyone knows. I assumed that a lot of the poles and stuff would be universal but thought if I could find out how long I needed ( as I'm kind of dreading have to put it up again) I'd get them made.
