Well, you take about 120-220 lb off the total weight of the bike if you walk it, and the 15-25 lb the bike weighs is probably not going to hurt much if the wheel is still rolling. If the tire is dragging because the wheel won't move, I'd carry the bike on my shoulder.
As for me, I always carry a spare tube, a patch kit, a pump, and a cell phone in case the other three don't work out.
