About this project

You can help bring the Original Can of Beans to the Giga Event in Munich, Germany! I've created this Kickstarter Project so the attendees of the upcoming Giga in Munich can decide if they want to bring the O.C.B. to the Event. The Original Can of Beans is the last remaining item from the very first geocache and is considered the 'Holy Grail' of the geocaching world. Over the last ten years the O.C.B. has traveled more than 100,000 miles to appear at dozens of events and be seen by thousands of geocachers! Now you can help bring it to Germany for the first time. This is the first-ever Giga Event in the world and is expected to have an attendance of over 10,000 geocachers.  Of course the O.C.B. should be there! Don't miss this chance to be part of geocaching history with your name/website posted for everyone to see at the O.C.B. display!

Let's bring the Original Can of Beans to the Project MUNICH2014 Giga Event in Munich, Germany! Yes, it's very expensive to get the O.C.B. overseas and we simply can't do it without your help. If enough cachers put in just a couple of dollars/euros we can do this! Here is a quick look at some of the costs involved:

  • $2000 for transportation from Arizona to the Giga Event in Munich
  • $800 for lodging, meals, display and rewards costs
  • $300 for car rental/local transportation
  • Kickstarter and Amazon fees
  • Any additional funding over the project goal will be used for making O.C.B./Giga Event Pathtags (time permitting) and for the continued display of the OCB at upcoming Giga or Mega Events, keeping it available for geocachers to experience and enjoy!

Risks and challenges

After the project is funded we will immediately make the necessary arrangements to get the O.C.B. to the Giga on time. The sooner we make the project goal the sooner we can reserve and book transportation to Munich. Of course we need to do that as soon as possible. We've already got display space confirmed for the O.C.B. at the event.
