Penned by the marvelous author and illustrator C. B. Colby these commandments were most likely compiled while he was the Camping Editor of "Outdoor Life Magazine". Simple, sensible, practical and as relevant now as ever.

1. Thou shalt not arrive or depart a campground with great chaos
2. Thou shalt not despoil any living thing about thee
3. Thou shalt not be slovenly about they tent site
4. Thou shalt not make loud noises after 10 p.m.
5. Thou shalt not let thy pets and children run wild
6. Thou shalt not give advice unless it is sought after
7. Thou shalt not hesitate to give aid if it’s needed
8. Thou shalt not crowd thy neighbor unduly
9. Thou shalt not borrow unless desperate
10. Though shalt not know more about camping than all others
— C.B Colby

Just in time for some spring camping, are there any others people would like to see on there?
