Where now?

Sunday the 24th of June we fly from Guayaquil, Ecuador to Los Angeles, USA.  We will rent a car for 3 weeks and (roughly) do the following route:

We are thus entering our final month of travelling. For us this will be more like a normal, summer vacation. We are planning ahead, booking camping sites and hostels beforehand and we will also stick to these plans!
