On my way back home today, got to the bottom of the hill & the backend starts wiggling all over the place almost uncontrollable, pulled up & looked back to find.

On pulling it out, it just kept coming

Luckily only 2 miles from home, as the slime wouldn't seal it & I only had the wrong spare tube with me,

In parts of the USA they have goathead thorns. Nature could not have evolved a better puncture-causing object.

Know Exactly where your coming from with this one!
First time out Tubeless on the Mountain bike it looked like my rims were made of Blackthorn branches, some of which were most literally 10 to 12" long
I'd only gone about 1/2 a mile along the local Towpath. They must have cut the hedge about 3 minutes before I came along.
I wheeled the bike to the nearest bit of road, Divested my wheels of their "Crown of thorns" pumped the tyres back up, and I'm happy to report I rode back home. I did have top up the sealant.
