Default Guaranteed Purple Drop chest + Easter Egg

Alright guys, this is a compilation of info from the "Volcano Secret?" thread on the Spoilers section.

To gain access to the guaranteed purple drop chest, you have to:

-Go to Claptrap's Place
-Find the item in the fireplace
-Deliver the item to Geary, on the volcano in the Eridium Blight
*You cannot fast travel or die to get it to register
**Cars however ARE allowed
Spoiler: (The path is Claptraps Place -> Southern Shelf -> Three Horns - Divide -> Three Horns - Valley -> The Dust -> Eridium Blight)
-Let Geary hit you once, and then he will jump off a cliff into the lava
*If he hits you more than once you failed at it and have to re-do it.
** Nova/Spike shileds will kill him and de-qualify you!
-Enjoy the 3 Rakk flying by overhead dropping loot chests, including the guaranteed purple drop chest!

Video with spoken instructions here!
Thanks to Mrmurderx1221 for a well done guide on this!

If you're not seeing the reference, think Lord of The Rings and then maybe you'll understand.

Also, Geary can be farmed for purple rarity heads if you're into that stuff.

--Bonus--
Kunckledragger can be farmed for the Hornet since he's on the way
--Have Fun--

Many thanks to everyone who helped with finding all this out!
Happy Farming!

--Edit--
Thanks to thrasherv3 for reminding me, this has only been guaranteed to be accessible on PT2. There have been some cases of it working on PT1 (Post-warrior kill and multiplayer) but those have been iffy still.

Thanks to falconbox585 and friends for some further testing! This can be done as a group, however another player joining mid-trek nullifies the event, as the new person spawns from a New-U.

More testing has been done (Thank you cabarius) and it appears that co-op is sporadic at best, so farm solo and share with friends later.

Credit to calvinpork to getting me first video here!

Can this be repeatedly farmed by restarting the game to get more triple chests?

As we have been able to re-create it so far, yes. It's just a long drive/run.

Well, heck, for guaranteed purples that we don't need a golden key for, I'd say it's worth it!XD

Is it only PT2 or can it be on PT1 too? And where/what is this "item?" Having difficulty finding it :/

Says right up there in the top post; it's in Claptrap's place[beginning of the game, the very first "building" you ever enter, also where you get your first gun], in the fireplace.
Retrieve it, then go to the Volcano on the Eridium Blight map without using Fast Travel, and without dying.

From what I remember of the thread, it's both PT1 and PT2, but you have to have beaten The Warrior on PT1 first. Not sure about that last part though so don't quote me.

The PT1 bit is still iffy, seeing as how we've had mixed cases on it. I'll bring that up in the OP though, thanks!

Yeah, I've beaten PT1 and I don't seem to have anything I can pick up in the fireplace. Same thing for PT2 although I just started it.

Yeah I got the hornet on my last run for the chest, happy day indeed. Who's up for another Easter egg hunt?

I'm up for another hunt. I found a lever in 'Southern Shelf - Bay' that does seemingly nothing. Not sure if it's for opening the door to Midgemong or some hidden easter egg in the bay. The lever is just outside the vending machine room, to the left as you leave.
