this is the traditional method and is what I would do. When I get a flat, I pull the tube out of the tire but leave the valve stem in the rim. That way when I put air in the tube, I can match it up with the tire and find the cause. I don't usually patch tubes on the road, but I have never had a flat on the road that I couldn't have fixed by patching.
