Wilcox is of those whom exist outside the norm. Traversing deserted roads and nameless fields, Wilcox sets off to create his own mythology. Deserter, delinquent, or survivalist, the adventurer quietly roams in search of something; in search of a touchstone of some kind; in search of what could more simply be described as freedom.
