How does this general plan look?

A bit of warning that IE has some issues with the Google Maps.
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&hl=e...,3.521118&om=1

I count 19 places stopped, as indicated by the map, but many of the routes will be cut into two days, or more, and camping will be involved. I want to spend 60 days doing this, and so obviously I will stay put for several days occasionally. Also, I'd like it if anyone would tell me that I am missing a crucial place to see.
This is just a general plan, and the routes might not even be the ones listed. I am mostly looking for feedback, and I would appreciate any.

Thanks for your input. The google map is just a general plan, and I couldn't specify any locations that were not cities. Maybe I am just looking for some things that people think I need to see.
