14 Branchland Court

Chris has lived all his life in the Commonwealth of Virginia, leaving only to visit other parts of the United States on a few brief occasions. However, for a number of reasons, he has lived in different homes during different periods, in two parts of the state.

Chris was born in and currently lives in Ruckersville, a bumfuck town in the middle of nowhere on the outskirts of Charlottesville, which is mainly inhabited by people similar to the late Bob Chandler. For most of his teenage years, he lived in a nearly identical suburb 77 miles (125 km) away, just outside the city of Richmond in Chesterfield County. His family decided to return to Ruckersville after Chris finished high school.

Richmond suburbs

Cloverleaf Lakes Apartments.
Surreywood.

Richmond is the capital city of Virginia, and the former capital of the Confederate States of America. Chesterfield County is just southwest of Richmond, and contains many of its suburbs. Chris and his parents lived in this area from 1992 to 2000. During his life here, Chris attended Providence Middle School and Manchester High School. He attended a Korean church with his father, and occasionally went swimming at the local YMCA. By 2000 he was regularly playing Pokémon at Books-A-Million.

The Chandler family moved back to Ruckersville at the end of Chris's senior year, meaning that his transition from childhood to adulthood was marked by a physical relocation across the state. This move has therefore acquired enormous symbolic significance for Chris. His complete failure to become a successful adult since then, coupled with his rose-tinted view of high school and his gal-pals, have caused him to romanticize Chesterfield County. He continues to believe that had his family not moved back to "lame Ruckersville," he would currently be drowning in china and everything would be perfect and uncomplicated.

Cloverleaf Lakes Apartments

The Cloverleaf Lakes Apartments are a set of apartments located just outside of Richmond in Chesterfield County, where the Chandler family lived from 1992 to 1995.

Chris claimed to have often seen "whooping cranes" in the duck pond behind their domicile.[1] Whooping cranes are nearly extinct and are not found in Virginia, so it's more likely that he saw sandhill cranes.

Surreywood Subdivision

The Surreywood Subdivision, or as Chris spells it, "Surrywood", is an area of Chesterfield County where the Chandlers lived from 1995 to 1996.

Newberry Towne Subdivision

The Newberry Towne Subdivision is an area in 500-odd homes in Chesterfield County.[2] The Chandlers lived at 6008 Partingdale Circle[3] from 1996 to 2000, Chris's important high school years. It is a three-bedroom, three-bathroom condominium built in 1978.

According to Chris, the neighbors spread rumors about his family.[4] Chris has never discussed these rumors in any great detail, or mentioned whether they were a factor in the family's decision to move away from the Richmond area. He has, however, speculated that dark forces on the Greene County School Board, back in Ruckersville, conspired to force the relocation.

Ruckersville

Chris spent his first years in Ruckersville, VA, where the Chandlers resided at 14 Branchland Court. He and his father moved to the Richmond area after Chris left the fourth grade due to a dispute with the local school system. According to a video address Chris released on 8 May 2010, the Chandlers tried to sell 14 Branchland Court at some point during their time living outside Richmond, but were unable to do so. As a consequence, Chris says, they were forced to move back to Ruckersville after he graduated high school.

Barboursville

After the January 2014 fire at 14 Branchland Court, the Chandlers moved to a temporary rental house in the nearby unincorporated community of Barboursville, Virginia.

Chris and other states

Chris has rarely left Virginia, save for a trip to California for his half-brother's birthday,[5] his ill-fated road trip to Ohio to visit Julie, a 2012 journey to D.C. to see a MythBusters show, and his 2017 visit to BronyCon in Baltimore.
