    The sentence does not express a complete thought, something needs to be added. Go without is a phrasal verb; meaning: to not have something which you usually have. You can say:
    We didn't go without a grammar book to the class some time ago..
    You can not go without food and water for a long time.
    I do not like going without sleep at night..
