That is SFJOE in the pics. He was riding with a group that was doing Steel Pass from the North. They stopped to help out Larry (Galatic GS) with his bent rim. Around 5 minutes after we got moving again, Joe hit a rock that bent his. Joe's group used up their two spare tubes with the bent rims (the tubeless tires wouldn't hold air), and as fate would have it , a third bike went flat. I think you know the rest of the story, Joe and crew finally made it back to camp sometime after midnight after driving out with a flat tire.
I just looked up Reedley, looks like you're just up the road from me in Hanford. PM sent.
