Since when does Oznium ship from CO? When did this move occur? Pics of the new warehouse and updated office?

Does Santa Monica = Colorado?

Phil is from California, but his parents currently live in Colorado. However the move wasn't for that reason, it was for other money-saving things.

Wasn't sure if there were multiple warehouses. I didn't see any harm in checking if there were any open positions in southern California.

higher elevation means cheaper shipping costs since all trucks have to go down hill

But they have to go uphill to bring the items to the warehouse to begin with....

Was wondering how long it'd take for someone to notice ;)

I've put up a bunch of photos showing the old, and the new. What a difference!
- CLICK HERE FOR WAREHOUSE PICS

Moved in November. Its an awesome brand new building, fully insulated, electronic roll up doors, great lighting, painted floor, fully sheet-rocked and painted, radiant heat floors for winter, so its nice and toasty inside, no rodents.

CO has cheaper rent, labor, and taxes.

Plenty of sunshine, fresh mountain air, open space, and friendly people. I was getting tired of CA. People seemed so stressed, probably about the economy. Too many rules, traffic, and crowds.

I'm in Koh Samui, Thailand for the next few months to escape winter. After that who knows... Maybe back to the US, maybe visit China for a bit, or maybe Europe. I really miss the slower pace of life there, and drinking iced coffee frappés while staring at the Aegean sea ahhHhh...

Its a weird feeling not owning a car. Went from 4 cars back in June to now 0. A full time driver in Thailand is like $20 to $30 per day including gas. Cheaper than a rental car in Hawaii.

Lol I should try this as a negotiating tactic with UPS.

I can fly from Nashville to Denver to see my family in 1/4 of the time it would take me to drive from Denver to the approx. location of the new Oz shipping location.

Hell, I can drive from one end of TN to the other and still have a couple hours left over as compared to the drive from Denver to the Oz warehouse location.
