What was your best D&D experience?

I just finished reading 30 Years of Adventure, the history of D&D. I was struck by how much work went into the creation of the campaign settings, from Ravenloft to Dark Sun to Forgotten Realms -- never mind the historical sourcebooks like A Mighty Fortress.
I think back to my own campaigns and realize they were actually pretty primitive, probably because my friends and I were about 14 and didn't understand story structure or subtle characterization.
So my questions are these: Did you use the campaign settings that the writers at TSR created? Did any of those minor gods in the back pages of Forgotten Realms ever see daylight?
And beyond the written settings, what were your favorite homegrown campaigns? What plots and character arcs made them so enjoyable? Ask MeFi has posts on how to make a great campaign, but I can't find any sort of discussion on what past campaigns made for a great D&D role-playing experience.
