Ally has to write three songs for herself for a meeting with a record label, but Austin also needs a song for when he goes on Video Countdown Lives' New Music Tuesday. He tells Ally he can write his own song, but after trying to find inspiration from the Pioneer Rangers handbook, he finds that the song he and Dez wrote is actually horrible. Austin is too embarrassed to ask for Ally's help, so he instead takes Dez's advice and tries to get Ally to offer help. Their plan backfires when Ally is afraid she'll hurt their feelings and says she loves it. Trish tells Ally that Austin will be humiliated if he gets on live TV, so Ally tells him her honest opinion and Austin asks for help. Ally tells him that there isn't enough time, but suggests he uses one of her demo songs; however, he refuses because her songs are too girly for him. Meanwhile, Trish is helping her brother's Pioneer Rangers group and has to take them camping. Ally suggests that Austin calls the show to say that he has to reschedule because he is volunteering with the Pioneer Rangers. However, the plan backfires when the show suggests bringing the show to Austin and watching him perform from the campground. On the day they're leaving, Ally suggests that Austin could sing his song as a gift for the children since it is centered on the Pioneer Rangers. When he sings his song, the show thinks it's a joke and Austin has to find a new song to sing. The Pioneer Rangers are told to stall the broadcast by tying the host to a stump with an impossible knot and then trapping the rest of the crew in a tent so that Austin doesn't have to go live. In the end, Austin doesn't have to perform live after a bear shows up at the campsite.
