I second the recommendation to use some Shoe Goo, that stuff is super-duper.

Put something on the inside of the tire like some cloth tape (though it doesn't matter what, really, just something that isn't stretchy, and won't abrade the tube, like mentioned, dollar bills are good 'quick fixes' for this on the road. Then goop some shoe goo to fill in the hole. The tire will be good as new, or maybe even better, since you now have a mini-flak-jacket on that one tiny part of the tire. Someone should just make an entire tire out of dollar bills and shoe goo sometime.

peace,
sam
