Storyline

Mac is not amused when Peter fixes the Phoenix Foundation flight simulator to crash just before he actually takes a bunch of probation trouble youths camping by airplane, without any budget. Their regular counselor takes reinforcements as an insult and splits; Mac wins some respect by his ingenious bush cooking skills. The pilot who was to return the party a few days later gets a heart-attack, so they crash in the wilderness. The rebellious ruffians (boys and one disputed girl) prove quite a handful to get out of trouble -most of which they keep creating- even with macgyverisms, but a serious grudge between gang leaders and a medical emergency really push Mac's resourcefulness to the limit, but at least now they all pull together...
