I was thaaaaat close to winning the rust challenge last year. 'Course there was one of those technical details in the rules, you know the one, enter first!!! Plenty of time I thought, to submit. One day there's only a few entries, the next, its closed. I was across the road from San Francisco's presidio when I found this rust encased chain at the edge of the parking strip.
