Love or hate the Bob Welch era of the Fleetwood Mac, or the rock hall of fame, it's fucking insane the group left him out when they were voted in. RIP.

Robert "Nevada Bob" Sacks passes away late last week. He was a long time burner, and his first few years on playa were with the BLM. When he retired, he returned as a participant.

We met in 03 (or thereabouts), when I joined The Chop Shop crew, which at that time had yet to actually name themselves. With his wavy gray hair, and long beard, he looked more Grizzly Adams than burner. But looks are deceiving, and Bob was more burner than almost anyone I knew. From that first day, I instantly took a liking to Bob, and for the next 8 years he became an integeral part of not only our camp, but of my burn.

He will be missed by all.
Drugs may take you down the road to nowhere, but at least its the scenic route.

It does seem like it's an end to that simpler time of apple pies and TV trips to Mayberry. It will live on in re-runs for future generations to see and long for.

Well said, LeChat. Andy was one of a kind. On his sets he never allowed yelling or swearing. It was always a pleasant work environment. He was every bit as All American as he came across in his characters.

Just think... Opie is now 58. Ouch.
If everyone is special... no one is.

Mayberry has always been a state of mind, and anyone can go there just by thinking.
There will always be a young boy skipping stones in the creek. There will always be an easy-going sherrif/ranger and a deputy afraid of his own power.
And there's always some fresh peach cobbler at the boarding house, y'all.
