Yep, just check online where you can go in person to apply for a new one, show them your intinerary and you shoudl get one as quick as 2 days if need be.

You can get a passport expedited within something like 48 or 72 hours, so you can certainly get one in a month; however, you will pay an arm and a leg for it, and the stumbling block will be with getting an appointment with the passport agency (or post office passport office). 

If you go online there are tons of passport expediting services. Read their directions on how to do it–it will involve a trip to the post office at some point and you need to get that done pronto. I had to call a bunch of post offices and drive to hell and gone because most of the local ones couldn’t give me an appointment for several months. Sometimes post offices (usually the central ones in a city) have “passport fairs” where they see people all day long first-come first-serve, so try looking it up to see if there’s one in your area.  

There is a way to do it, but get started now.

you’ll have to pay major fees, but it’s definitely doable. if you go to a big post office or passport processing center you don’t need an appointment.

I lost my passport a few years ago and kept putting off dealing with it.  I finally got the paperwork for a lost passport, took it to the post office,  and got it in the mail in two weeks, without any expediting.

Start by calling your local post offices for an appointment- mine could fit me in the next day, so I didn’t have JennyWI’s problem.  Then make sure you have all the paperwork filled out (you have to submit a passport application, and a lost passport form) and either get your picture taken at CVS or make sure the post office has the capability to take your picture, and you should be all set.

I’d also suggest maybe taking the day today or tomorrow and opening all the boxes in your storage unit and searching there. I know I’ve “lost” a ton of stuff when moving only to find it in a box later. It sounds like that would be the most conspicuous spot for it.
