How do one night stands work on a practical level? Who brings protection, etc? Ladies, do you keep them around?

For most of my dating history, actual intercourse would happen after many dates, and after some non-intercourse.
But recently I was in a brief relationship where we went from watching tv at her place to intercourse. Fortunately (thankfully!), she had some condoms as I didn't.
This got me thinking about a whole bunch of things:
1. I live in the 'burbs while all the women I'm interested in live in the major city. In media, one night stands seem to always happen at the guy's place because he takes her home. But what if home is a 40 mile drive? Do one night stands ever happen at the woman's place - how does this work?
2. Do people generally carry condoms with them? Is it common for women to keep condoms at home? How does a guy carry condoms around? They're so fragile!
3. Maybe I'm just paranoid about sleeping with my contacts on, but how do you do a one night stand if you wear contacts?
It's kind of silly that I don't know any of these things at age 30, but hey, now's the time to ask I guess.
