flat right before thanksgiving. awesome.
i had planned to bring my bike out to the parent's house for thanksgiving so i could screw around while all the old guys fell asleep.
i check it now, 1130pm, and it's got a flat, with no puncture that i can see.
aaaaand i don't have a repair kit.
aaaaand tomorrow the bike store will be closed because it's thanksgiving.
:[ rubber cement + patch of some kind?
It may sound funny but I have used ducktape with success. Id say go for it. The pressure between the tube and tire will hold it in place.

also wallyworld or something should be open tomorrow for a patch kit.

Worst case scenario: find the puncture. Cut it out with scissors. Your tube is now a hose, not a tube. Tie a knot in it. Re-install. Yes you will feel a bump when the knot comes around but you can ride.
