I've accidentally trespassed on Fort Knox. (Received quite a welcome, too!)

Do tell! What happened??

Yes do tell....:think:


This was a long, long time ago................My family was travelling through the South, and we got lost. (Or, as we like to call it: Taking the scenic route) We started driving down an old dirt road, that was barely more than two tracks, and drove for what seemed like forever. There was nowhere to turn around - and I don't know what we'd have done if a vehicle had come from the opposite direction! There was only room for one vehicle! We finally came into a clearing, and found that we were on the edge of a large, open field that rose into a hill......So, we drove up into the field some to turn around, since we obviously couldn't drive across the field..............We had just started driving up into the field when a TANK, and several jeeps full of armed men came over the rise of the hill . I have NO IDEA how we did it, but we apparently had accidentally found a "secret" entrance to the rear of Fort Knox. (And they have no worries, because I'd never be able to find it again) Thankfully, the men were actually very understanding. (This was LONG before Sept. 11, or I'm sure that we'd have had a lot more explaining to do than just "We got lost!") But it was pretty frightening to be staring down the business end of a bunch of guns.

Great story, Savannah! I bet you get nostalgic every time you see the TAGS episode about the gold truck coming through town. Wink

Actually, I start to hyperventilate. :paperbag: :Hahaha:


Another random fact: I can memorize large portions of scripture, and long poems pretty easily - but sometimes can't remember what I went upstairs to get. Huh?

I like to cook, ice skate, swim, and dance.

I play GameBoy games and want a Nintendo DS. I'm not the best at video games, but they are a lot of fun!
