That was VI Rob last week.
VI stands for Vancouver Island, BC, home of p2pnet. Liz, my wife, Emma, my daughter, and I live here too.
I was on the BC mainland trying to develop new outlets for our Dad’s Westcoast Wildfire Awesome Sauce, the hot sauce my wife, Liz, and I created to help keep the wolf from our door, and p2pnet online.
To answer Rob, it went well, mate.
Like so many other sites, p2pnet was hit hard by the recession and I tried various ways to use the net to replace the advertising support I’d lost because of it, I said last year, going on:
“None of them worked and I decided try something completely different — an off-line venture requiring no start-up capital (well, very little) no previous experience, and absolutely not reliant on the vagaries of the internet.
“It’s called Dad’s Westcoast Wildfire Awesome Sauce.”
Shameless p2pnet self-promotion
Until now, we’ve only been selling the sauce here on Vancouver Island which, because it’s an island, is obviously somewhat limited geographically.
However, as of yesterday, Dad’s Awesome Sauce, and our new Dad’s Westcoast Rainforest Awesome Sauce (mild, but not tame ) is being sold at Donald’s Market, 2342 East Hastings Street in the city of Vancouver on the mainland. And all things being equal, it’ll also be available in five other locations within a very short period of time.
SO – if you’re in Vancouver and you like a sauce that’s hot and tasty, but which won’t leave you on your knees, head over to Donald’s Market.

Pepper’s – 3829 Cadboro Bay Rd
