Ok, finally got the tire off the rim

Came up with a viable technique involving all three tire levers. Good thing those levers are unbreakable, with two I'd have been dead in the water.

I realized my other last-ditch option here would be to hide the bike really really well away from the roadside by some marker, put on all my warm clothes and load the backpack with the water bottles, and walk out of here. Then I rent a car or u-haul, pick up the bike and drive it back, and regroup in a motel while I perfect some method for getting the tire back on the rim with less-than-normal hand strength.
