One of the things that always floors me about many my guildies is that they have this almost irrational fear of doing PUGs. Now, it's not I don't understand the annoyance factor that a PUG can bring, nor do I undervalue the appeal of a guild party, but the reality is that we are not a huge guild (currently) so unless you get lucky, you're not likely to find the people for a 5-man in-guild.
As almost anyone who reads this blog knows I'm very goal oriented, and am constantly working towards my goals in one way or another. As a result I realize that I'll need to do PUGs to reach my goals. But if you bring up PUGging to my guildies, only about 4 of the 15 or so who have 70s will react with anything but horror. And it always makes me wonder... am I the odd man out in my willingness to do PUGs or is my guild just filled with people who are just odd in this regard, and I'm more normal than I realize?
