624 Days in a Duffel Bag


May 8, 2008 from Baraga, Michigan

For the last 624 days I have been living out of my duffel bag. Tomorrow is the last time I'll go to my duffel bag for a change of clothes.

This is no exaggeration. I moved into my duffel bag on about August 23rd of 2006, while leaving Lansing and headed home before my trip. Tomorrow, I move to Marquette and will have a dresser and closet of my own. Two things I have not had for 624 days (not even while I was at home!).

For 1 year, 8 months, and 15 days I have turned to my red L.L. Bean duffel bag for clothes, toiletries, and all of that.

It is a duffel bag that was given to me from Baraga High School, and says Baraga Class of 2001 on it. The duffel bag has been to France, England, Scotland, Czech Republic, and now to all 50 states. Pretty incredible.

It will be strange to move out of my duffel bag and use things such as a closet and a dresser.

624 days later, goodbye duffel bag!
