On job searching and hope.

Looking for experiences of job seekers who were offered a job long after the final interview.
What is the LONGEST amount of time you have waited for a verbal and written offer?
Some background: i quit my job somewhat unexpectedly to relocate after some crummy Life Things happened. I have been job searching for almost 7 months. I work in academic research (coordination and managerial roles, I am not a trained phd researcher).
Back in the late fall I had a promising phone interview. The in person portion did not
go quite as well, but I still had a good feeling. They told me that hiring occurs at a glacial pace and I probably wouldn't hear from them for a vague amount of time.
I want this job and I want to convinced myself that maybe I am still in the running, but I still feel like I would have heard at least something by now.
I was also told I would be reimbursed for part of my travel since it was out f state. It had been two months and nothing. I know they have not hired for the position yet and I was told it would be slow, but...
Your experiences with long hiring processes? Or time between final interviews and offers or rejections?
