I have experienced several, however, my most memorable adventure happened in the late 70's when I packed the U-Haul with everything I owned and moved to the USA for work. I'm happy to say 'the move' changed my life for the better.
I was in Germany during the late seventies. A fraction of the Red Army/Red liberation Front stole WW1 mustard gas from a military post. They also kidnapped a few people and threatened to release the mustard gas against all military bases including American. I was living on a military base in Neu Ulm Germany at the time. I went to bed and woke up with a knock to the door. I was given 20 minutes to pack and be out side to await a military bus that would take us out of country. I was allowed one small bag, and that had to include everything I needed for three days. AT the time I had two small children, one an infant. I walked down stairs and was handed a deck of cards, and three gas mask and instructed on how to use the gas mask. The deck of cards had my hubsands id number and other information on each card. We where loaded in buses, and set off for Munich . We had to stop at many road blocks and each time we stopped a card was requested from me. I found out later the cards let my hubby know my progress out of country. It was scary, and frightening, considering I had very small kids. You may read more about it under German Autumn. It amazed me that when I got back to the states most Americans didnt know it happened. It was and still is the greatest adventure I have ever had, considering I have never had to run for my life since.
