Maritime Mega IV OCB Geocoin


Recommended Posts


It's likely the most famous trackable in geocaching history: the Original Can of Beans.


The first geocache was placed on May 3, 2000 in Oregon by Dave Ulmer. The items contained in the black plastic bucket included software, videos, books, food, money and a slingshot. The food included a can of beans.


By October, the original cache had fallen victim to Department of Transport workers clearing brush. The Original Can of Beans (or OCB) is the last remaining piece of that original cache.


When it was discovered, the can was quite damaged as it was partially buried and exposed to the weather. It was carefully straightened out, cleaned and treated with rust stopper and UV-resistant polyurethane. Now, it is taken to events around the world so people can see the history. The next stop will be this summer in Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada at Maritime Mega IV (GC6MET1).


The MMIV Organizing Committee requested that I design a geocoin to commemorate the visit.


So now I present the Maritime Mega IV OCB Geocoin.
