    Best Wishes from seikopath

    Dear everybody,

    Dave (seikopath) has asked me to send his best wishes to all on the forum, and particularly to everyone who he has met personally.

    He wants us to know that he is thinking of us from time to time.

    That’s really good to know thanks Matthew. Is he still abroad or back home now?

    Were there to be a poll held to determine the most popular member of the forum it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest to see him at, or close to, the top of the list despite not having posted in well over two years now.

    (OK there may be the 'odd dissenter', but I believe he's no longer around.)

    Thanks for the update Matthew. I miss Dave's philanthropic view point which was certainly the antithesis of a lot here. Send him my best if he gets in touch.

    Cheers,
    Gary

    That’s great to hear. I hope he is keeping well!

    I always enjoyed our exchanges.

    All the best Dave!

    Good to hear that he's ok. In his absence, we should all try to make the Forum a better place by being more Dave.

    Dave (Seikopath)

    For those that may not know,
    As we lived within a fairly recent vicinity of each other, we kept in touch up until he moved out to Tibet to become a full time Monk.
    He explained in detail about this to me and at the time and shared some photos of his guru and area that he was going to be living within, I thought good for him.
    I've had a couple of messages from him, the last one in 2020.


    Good to see and hear people still remember him and care.

    I hadn't realised that is what Dave had done. I knew he had connections with Nepal.

    BND moves to Nepal to become a monk, not entirely surprising, wish him well.

    I am sure Dave is happy with his chosen path.

    He was always an asset to the forum.

    Monking!

    Glad to hear he’s ok and wish him well going forward.
    I remember him raffling his polar explorer for the Nepalese earthquake victims and also him doing a collection of unwanted watches for the poor (er) of Nepal.

    Actually, apologies as thinking more about this, I think you have corrected me and he may be in Nepal, (not Tibet), as I’m probably mixing it up with his adventures there with his past in Bead dealing.

    Thanks

    How does one become a 'full time monk'? Not being sarcastic, for a change, just wondering if it is like joining the foreign legion or something where people go to escape a problem or crap life. Or maybe a 'calling'? Not something I could do.

    Dave showed me his ‘prayer space’, the door of which had special meaning to him and he’d brought from one of his journeys. I’ve no idea how you bing a whole door back but he did! Wish him all the best, he certainly had an aura of calm and tranquility around him prior to leaving the UK and I hope that continues for him - I think we could all do with a bit more calm and tranquility after this last year in particular!

    Thanks for the update. Dave is one those guys who has a special light in him. I’ve never met him in person, but his light is bright enough to shine through his forum posts and private messages. My best wishes to Big Nose!

    In recognition of the good stuff Dave aspires to do I wondered if somehow this might be worth revisiting?

    How wonderful Matthew and thank you, please pass on my best wishes to the dear fella.

    You know my stories of Dave and funny enough I had a proper shave on Sunday with his leaving gift bestowed to me when we had our parting lunch.

    Some lovely words above chaps and fond memories of the Norwich GTG and impromptu coffee meet ups, he truly touched my life.

    I'm a great believer in not doing things by half measures, and fair do's, going out to Tibet to become a monk is right up there. I can only give seikopath my best wishes and hope the path he has chosen is a fulfilling one.

    Presume someone knows how to get them to Dave over in Nepal?

    Or maybe set up a crowd fund and purchase some cheap reliable new Casio F91W's (or similar) to be sent out to him. Providing of course he would want this.

    If someone wants to do a fundraiser I've got a few bit's and pieces I can send.

    Longines ballpoint pen in a leather pouch plus 2 refills. (New)
    A few Bergion item's I can add. (New)
    Quite a few straps that I could sort through and add in. (New)


    Just PM me if this gets up and running and I will post them to whoever runs it.

    A fundraiser is a nice idea, I'm not in a good position to run anything at the moment but perhaps nearer the time that I'm able to get over there. I'd suggest any donations are made to Rokpa, which is one of Dave's favoured charities. https://www.rokpa.org/what-we-do.html

    I'll also be happy to take a few inexpensive watches, and am certain that he will be able to distribute them to those who need them most.

    A decent order of F91's would be £10 - £15 per item, I would be happy to contribute to whatever is decided.

    Thanks for the link, that website is awful and I thought the first donation failed but it didn't so they've had double what I'd planned to give now but it's a for a good cause
