Lord help me, sometimes I'm just not that bright - Part III

Replaced the tire, and not the tube on Saturday, tube still held air even thought the tire was flat when I got out to it. Instead of missing a ride to Winter Park on a blue bird day, I filled the sucker with slime, and headed off with patches, pump, and irons in backpack. Got to Winter Park, but only 3 miles out of there on the way back, she was completely flat and wouldn't take any air. So, sent my one buddy back over the divide to drive my truck to the closest pickup spot, and another buddy helped me bust the bead, and fill the tire with pine needles, pine branches, and pine cones. Needless to say, this fix only lasted a short time.
This is what happens when you're forced to ride 26 miles on a flat, filled with pine cones, pine needles, and pine branches rear tire........
Notice the nice fine, High Country Colorado Mulch...
It's not totally shot, right .......
Another look at my newly developed mulching system......
Over all, two broken rim locks, tube was already trash so that's a wash, and a perfectly good - completely ruined Bridgestone M22.
Anyone need a slightly used, new tire ..........

Wondered why you were looking for rim locks...generally (for most normal folks)those are pretty hard to lose or damage...
You could retrace your path...with a tool kit, air pump, and a couple of scabs. Maybe some lunch?
By the way, how many sequels can your viewing audience and fans expect? Dodger; Lord Help Me IV,V,VI,VII,VIII,....XXV???
