Back in those early days, I recall my mind spinning to tales of Blackmoor.
And, of course, to the World of Greyhawk. RIP Gary Gygax.
But my first D&D adventure was from the back-of-rules manual for the Basic D&D Boxed Set. There was a really cool room that had four carved out niches covered in cobwebs--my very first encounter if I remember correctly. If you hesitated too long, as my character Brand did, four skeleton fighters would charge forth. It was a simple little dungeon that served to draw me in. And then the jaws snapped shut, no going back. Trapped, D&D geek for life.
Just waxing a bit nostalgic as we head into the holiday week here in the US.
Have a fav memory of your first "random encounter" with D&D? Feel free to share with the group.
Also: I consider the day after Thanksgiving (11/29) to be officially "Game Day." A day I can firmly proclaim to the missus, "This is my one full day on the computer so please please please just let me enjoy it." I'll "be in the lounge all day" folks, if you care to join. Man, I should probably have another coffee. Cheers guys.

Obviously there were many adventures before this that served to intrigue me and keep me playing, but that one always sticks in my mind.
