Entry/Exit Stamp scan neededI'm a frequent traveler myself and my weird collection is entry/exit stamps. Unfortunately, I've not made it yet to South Sudan and won't anytime soon so I'm asking to see if someone/anyone can do a scan of their entry/exit stamps for South Sudan and PM them to me. The more the merrier. The only reward you'll get is an attaboy from me but it will be a big one and, if you like, I'll send you a personalized picture of myself in any one of the 105 countries I've been to. Who else will have a picture of a Lion in your country of choice?

2A good place to see passport stamps is this web. That guy claimed to be the first one who had visited all the countries in the world overland but his record wasn't recognized by the Guiness (for more info you can take a look here). He doesn't have stamps for all countries but has a good collection. I don't know if he'll have the stamp of South Sudan (it was the last country he visited) but you can look for it among all the stams in the different passports to see if you find it.

4Rudi, I hadn't heard of that organization, but a quick look at their website failed to answer the very basic question of what I would get in return for my US$175 fee. Anything noteworthy?
FWIW, I've noticed that around a hundred or so the laws of diminishing returns set in--you've plucked most of the low-hanging fruit, and if inclined to take any year-long trips covering dozens of countries have probably already done so.
Nothing to do with passport stamps--I'm just musing.

6Man, that website is some pure comedy gold. Hilarious. Once you have 150 "territories" you can buy the " silver 150 destinations pin" for only $8 (what a bargain). I bet that thing is really helpfull when you're visiting your 151th destination. Sporting your pin somwhere in the jungle of the DRC or something. Whoo-hooo! I so wish i run into someone actually wearing it somwhere. From the look of the pics, those folks seem to be reeeaaaally easy-going....Not.

7Mark and Marc - I would not have expected either of you to be interested, but when reading Montgomeryjlion's post I got the feeling that he might well be interested and as he already has 105 "ticks" he would qualify to join immediately. Regretably. I have neither the wherewithall, nor the time to reach the century mark, so I will leave it to others to do so.

Any scans would be appreciated.
I'm at the 165 country mark.
I don't bother with websites since every one has a different definition of "country" (Is England a country? Vatican City? Palestine? Western Sahara? Trans-Dniester Republic? Hong Kong? Etc, etc.)
Alas, most of the countries I'm missing are Pacific Islands and a few remote African Countries (CAR, anyone?) plus lots of the Caribbean (Lions don't like water too much.)
