Actually, I wasn't as prepared as usual because I forgot to put the two inner tubes in the saddle bag that I usually carry. But luckily the pinch flat was patchable and I did have a patch kit (Slime - from Walmart - the orange and black ones).
As long as you "tighten" the rear nut with the same tool - you'll be easily be able to remove on the trail.

Front can be removed by just the 10mm pinch bolts - also in the kit.

Need some irons, pump and patches at a minimum!

What tools do you carry, more specifically what do you carry that can break the torque on your axle nut?
Standard equipment on any "off the pavement ride" ...........

Factory tool kit
3 tire irons
front tube
rear tube
patch kit
hand pump
co2 tire filler
tie wire
ty-raps
small bottle of soapy water
Stand to prop the bike on
valve stem core remover
valve stem installer
bead buddy
epoxy in the roll
pocket knife (multi tool)
baby vicegrips
piece of cloth to set the tire on
first aid kit.
duct tape
black electrical tape.

There's more, but that's a good start.

!

Can you actually put it back together by just the pinch bolts and keep the axle nut tight? Never tried it.

Yes..I just went to the garage and verified these fit. If I'm wrong, someone will speak up.

If it meant leaving my bike in the bush/trail - yep it would surely get you home (assuming you fixed the flat). If you take a visual where the original position of the axle is on the non nut side - you should get it close enough putting it back together.
In this case you'd never remove the axle nut (obviously only works on the front).

Have you done this? Can you explain how? I just had my front wheel off and can't envision how you could remove and reinstall it without removing the axle nut.
