The kids roll into town, and are clearly not impressed with the condition of the place. Wouldn't you think the Santa Fe County Historical Society would have something to say about letting a show take over this site for over a month? Think of the damage they could do. And that's just the production crew. "This place is dead and we need to bring it back to life," Mike interviews. Alex, nine, from Nevada, says he thought there would be adults. Are kids even running the cameras here? Kids run around, chase chickens, and explore the town's four single-room bunkhouses, which look like somebody worked very hard to make them look like they've been abandoned for 120 years. One kid is even moved to use the word "disarray." The rooms contain foot lockers with thin mattresses rolled up inside. There's some chaos around who's going to sleep where, and Mallory suggests to Mike that they call a meeting to get it all organized. For now, gender segregation appears to be the only priority. Mike wants to put off the meeting until dinner, when everyone will be together anyway. He will live to regret this.
