Well, with our technology. I think we could. But, we need to find out where it's heading first; said Charlie.

(Robert whispers to Jake T.) All right...something's happening on the news; said Jake T. (T.v. turns on, reporter on t.v.) We just found a boat which has been destroyed. As well, two bodies were found. Mr. and Mrs. Steven Peterson were found today; said the reporter. Give me a map. It was here, on the Pacific coastline. So, it might head either up or down. We need to get out there, fast; said Charlie.
