Any YCC peeps?

Just throwin this out there to see if there are any burners who were in the YCC back in it's heyday (late 70's).

Life changing experience for most of us.

I was unaware that Yuba City College had much of a following.

Doc, That was my thought too. It turns out it's something completely not that. 8)

YCC= Youth Conservation Corps (modeled after the CCC). A Summertime program of building forest infrastructure and trail work.

Yes, I was in the YCC back in the summer of 1978. Worked out of Ukiah, California. Spent most of the summer working east of Willets making a hiking trail for a local park.
