After some discussion in the 432 thread regarding the development of some characters... It started a discussion of just how much time has passed so far. I got bored and decided to speed through the old chapters and try and get a rough idea. Here is what I have found so far. Rough estimate of time spent on each island: -Luffy's home - Day of departure. -Albida's - 1 day -Morgan's - 1 day (kicked off after they ate dinner.) -Buggy's - 1 day (kicked off again) -Gaimon's (the treasure chest guy) - 1 day -Ussop's - 2 days (attack happened at dawn the day after they arrived... they left before the night was done) -random island - <1 day (met the 2 pirate hunters here. important because we are given a timeframe to the next location here.) -Travel Time - 2-3 days (given to us by the pirate hunters) -Restaurant Baratie pt.1 - 3 days (at this point Creig arrives.) -Baratie pt.2 - X days (at least 1... this covers the time Luffy is unconscious) -Arlong Park - X days (at least 3-4... It is described afterwards as days of partying before the Strawhats leave.) -Logue Town - 1 day ---PRE-GRAND LINE TOTAL - 18+ days of time confirmed. Likely closer to 1 month. -Entrance to Grand Line - 1 day -Whiskey Peak - 2 days --Travel Time - >2-3 days (based on Mr.3's comments) -Little Garden - 2 days --Travel Time - 3 days (Kureha said it was about 3 days since Nami got bit by the bug in LG.) -Drum Island - 2 days (stated by Nami) -Alabasta - 1 week (2 days before the attack, 1 day of, 3 days of sleep, 1 day to leave) -Jaya - 4 days (travel on Knock Up stream after that) -Skypiea - roughly a week or so (unknown total... said to be "days" of partying after the defeat of Eneru.) -Davy Back Fight/Aokiji - 5 days (stated that they stayed 4 days more for recovery.) --Travel Time - 3 days -Water Seven - 2 days (they leave at around midnight 2nd day, before the next morning they are at Enies Lobby) -Enies Lobby - 1 day -Water Seven pt.2 - 2 days (including travel time back from Enies Lobby) ---GRAND LINE TOTAL (so far) - 44+ days, adding unknown travel time... probably about 2-2.5 months total. That brings us to the current point where Garp has arrived. So even giving a reasonable amount of extra days for traveling time, Its only been about 3-4 months since Luffy left his home. Good lord... that is really hard to believe.
