Planning on leaving it inflated overnight and trying to pack minimally. What do you do?

Definitely bring a pump and a repair kit. The after market two stage pumps take up less space and take a lot less effort to use.

Always! You can let air out of board and sleep on top of it, then pump it up next morning.

Absolutely. What if you need it and you don't have it?

Yes bring a pump. Board pressure can change with temperature, valves can be a little loose and slowly lose pressure requiring the valve tool in repair kit to tighten as well as pump to top off.
