Why fix punctures by the side of the road? Now, I speak as someone to whom the puncture fairy was extremely kind on our JOGLE, but how about this for a better suggestion.

Check for whatever caused the puncture and remove it, then put your spare inner tube in (you *must* have a spare inner tube), inflate it, carry on. Minimal hassle by the side of the road when it may be cold, wet, windy etc.

Then, fix the puncture at the next stop (lunch or evening maybe?), **in the warm and dry**. Especially if its wet(prime puncture time) there is a possibility the mend not being that good and failing again, if any moisture gets in.

Well, that was my plan anyway, and I hope the PF has the same benevolent attitude to you as she did to us!
