About the County Bandits
Who are the County Bandits? Well, we are two individuals residing in Chatham-Kent, Ontario. In our posts, we refer to ourselves as the Bandit and the Accomplice. Bandit is a 20-something female and the Accomplice is a 30-something male.
We first began exploring abandoned houses in 2007 and started this blog that year as well. Back then, we both existed in a magical state where we didn’t have any schooling or work to keep us from staying up all night, every night. We would venture out night after night with a bag of peanut M&M’s between us and a hand-drawn map of a section of the county we intended to explore.
Systematically, we would drive up and down each road we had mapped, looking out our windows carefully for the signature dark silhouette of an abandoned house. Upon finding one, we would mark it on the map and explore it if we were able. We have always adhered to our own rules of engagement, where we only enter houses that are already open to nature, and always leave things as found.
Fast forward to the present time, and our lives are not so simple. We both work and try to complete home renovations on our own century farmhouse with whatever spare time we can find. However, we still jump at any opportunity we can to go out and hunt for abandoned houses. Any road trip we take is an opportunity for us to scour the landscape as we drive unfamiliar roads. We will never stop searching for, exploring, photographing and generally adoring abandoned houses.
