This is why you don’t. Something punched a pretty good hole in the tire

Don’t think it was this guy (probably a burr on a cattle guard or some pokey piece of prairie)

Into town in the morning to get it patched and we’re back in business. A few more hours of birding and it’s time to point it back the way we came. Don’t know if it?ll be the last trip of the year; tough call since this country has been very generous but I don’t want to get greedy.
