I live in Hendersonville, TN. This is more than you asked for, but a complete picture of the delivery process for me. Note that all times are MDT, so we can see the process from Spyderco's vantage.
For my first order, I received email confirmation from Spyderco at 9:50 AM on Thursday, July 12, and a shipping confirmation email from them at 9:47 AM on Friday, July 13. UPS Quantum View emailed me at 2:19 PM on Friday, July 13, with an estimated delivery date of Wednesday, July 18, but an Origin Scan didn't actually occur until 8:15 PM on Monday, July 16, and the Departure Scan was at 2:42 AM on Tuesday, July 17. The final delivery date was Thursday, July 19.
TL;DR - Although the shipment was apparently ready Friday afternoon, it doesn't appear that UPS received the package for transport until Monday evening. UPS took two days to ship once they had it on a truck.
For my second order, I received email confirmation from Spyderco at 8:27 PM on Thursday, July 26, and a shipping confirmation email from them at 9:01 AM on Friday, July 27. UPS Quantum View emailed me at 2:45 PM on Friday, July 27, with an estimated delivery date of Wednesday, August 1. An Origin Scan occurred at 9:10 PM on Friday, July 27, but a Departure Scan didn't occur until 4:12 AM on Monday, July 30. So far, it's still expected to deliver on Wednesday.
TL;DR - The order was ready on Friday and UPS picked it up on Friday, but it didn't actually ship until Monday morning. Still on track for two-day delivery.
So, for me, it only takes UPS two business days to deliver ground shipments from Golden, but UPS may or may not get the package from Spyderco on the same day as the Quantum View notification, and packages won't leave CO on a weekend.
I wasn't sweating any of the details above, but if you're the type who constantly tracks your packages you may want to allow for 2-3 days of padding for orders placed mid-week or later. I think I'll place my next order on a Sunday evening and see what happens.
