It’s a friendly town that suspects nothing about the smuggling activity that goes on at the Wilco Station.

Please note that this picture of the Wilco gasoline station is not in Wytheville but in another small town where the light was better for photography. Wilco stations are all similar. Also, since the story was written, Wilco has apparently been acquired by another company and sells Hess brand gasoline.
