What I've always wondered about the tube was how would that work with all the old sealant in my tires. I recently repaired the sidewall on one of my tires (including some stitching up!) and there is no way a tube would have worked well; it was so sticky in there I could barely keep the tire from sticking on itself. Thinking out loud though, Maybe the tube inflating would actually help that situation.

Anyways - OP, you are right - you need to carry a tube or a tire plug kit along with a pump to get back going if you have some trouble. You should bring a side wall patch as well (park tools sells them).
