Thanks so much jim. I got to thinking that fix it places for camping gear is about nonexistent. Even though I'm handy with this kind of thing, I just got frustrated. I want to reuse as much as possible without buying more stuff. I did find a super deal on a Coleman tent and broke down and bought it. It got great reviews and sleeps six. I saved everything for my North Face tent and hope to get it fixed eventually. It's my favorite one. Actually if I took an inordinate amount of measuring, calculating etc. bet ya I could figure it out. I just don't have time right now. Again, thanks and I will contact North Face or Sport Chalet.
