Wow. You obviously have much experience and I would appreciate your thoughts about when that sort of rupture might be expected. Or was it random?

 A few miles before I was on a dirt road with a lot of pot holes all over it so I hit a few. Lucky for me it popped right before I started into a badly maintained forest road. I was only 15 minutes from our house so I just called my wife to get me.

Just plug it, you'll be fine for another 10k miles.
