To avoid them the best thing you can do is to not ride in the gutters or on the dirt shoulders of roads. That 100% where you'll find them. Carry at least TWO extra tubes in addition to a patch kit.
I would also HIGHLY recommend using some sort of sealant. Either latex based or the glycol basd. Whatever, you will appreciate it. You don't need to run tubeless, just fill some of your tubes with the product. Here is a great set up to consider: http://oceanaircycles.com/2014/02/22/38mm-and-tubeless/ (Rob's going to be coming down for this ride!!!)
