Default Do you count both travellers as ccc?

I would say that you only count one traveler and the neutral in a standard 3 way.

I'm just checking what everyone else would say since there's a finicky inspector who tries to make homeowners pay to have homeowners fix old and safe but non compliant stuff. Last job we had he inspected he wouldn't pass it until we disconnected an old uf run that had a emt sleeve. So if you have 4 3 way 3wire romex runs going across the ceiling joists I'd say 100% fine which is the case in this instance.

You only have to count what can carry current simultaneously. So both travelers would only count as one.

If he tries to count both, draw him a diagram of how travelers work.

Look up the definition. I am fairly sure it is explicitly stated in the code book.
