On the road again -- heading home

We packed the car with all our purchases (boat parts and stuff from Costco) -- leaving enough room for Rosie in the back seat and we hit the road for the long trip south to Puerto Escondido where Cetus awaits our return on a mooring buoy.
We actually cut our stay short by a few days, forgoing the chance to visit with friends when we received an email from the Fonatur Marina that it had finally sold and the transition to the new owners would be taking over on June 30th.
We felt since we were getting down there near that time anyway, we'd speed up the trip so we could be there a few days before the turnover to see what was going to change.
We expect that the new owners will raise prices because the Fonatur Marina is government run and is very reasonably priced. Most marina's in Mexico not so much.
The other concern is if they get rid of the current staff, the travel lift operator that we trust so much might not be there any longer. We are very happy Cetus isn't hauled out right now so we don't have to worry about that aspect at this time, but lots of friends boats are.
We aren't worried about Cetus, just want to be down there to know what's happening. Plus we miss being "home".
So we're on the road again looking to complete the drive in 5 or 6 days. Not quite the easy 5 hour drive days we enjoyed on our big road trip.
On we go!
