1 Shot of me (Cabell Garbee) leaning against the front of my M35A2C taken in the grassy vendor area at Ripken Stadium.
2 Shot of Carter standing behind his M37 just before starting his BigElectric hot dog cookout.  Carter parked his M37 behind my M35A2C and fed everyone who made it by.   His truck is one that he originally drove while in the National Guard and later purchased after it had done Civil Defense Duty...
Photos 1 and 2 where taken by Kevin who is a member of the BigElectric M37 forum.
3-8 Photos of the 2004 East Coast Convoy's arrival in the paved section of the 2004 East Coast Rally at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen.   Convoy entered the rally site and made a big loop around the paved vendor and display area before most participants headed up the hill to the grassy vendor and free camping areas.
Photos 3-8 where taken by Steve from Statesville

109, 110 Bjorn Brandstedt and his son Adrien work at removing the generator from Sonny's Airstream just north of Richmond, VA on the way home.   The frame extension holding the generator started to give way, so the generator was relocated to the back of Sonny's M35A2 for the rest of his trip home to Florida.
111 One of the NCMVPA members who had really wanted to be in the convoy managed to get himself deployed to Iraq, so we sent him a convoy t-shirt...    Chris replied "I received the convoy T-shirt in the mail last week, and I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate having it. Thank you so much for it.   I've attached a picture of me wearing it. I was going to try to get a better picture, but I would look pretty much the same, so I figured I would go ahead and send this one since I'm not getting any younger or better lookin'. My first sergeant took the picture for me on the roof of the house we live in here in Baghdad. The house behind me took a missile during the war, but the destruction you see now is from the teardown of the house."  Hopefully, Chris will be able to join us in person for the 2005 East Coast Convoy, meanwhile, we are wishing him well...
