Rethink Possible

Have you ever wanted to do something that you thought was out of your reach. Something you didn’t think you were capable of?

This photo might make you think twice about those kinds of things.

My husband and I were driving home from a fun weekend out of town when we came upon a traffic slowdown on the freeway.

It was nothing serious, just a slower vehicle in the center lane.

From behind we couldn’t quite see what it was. I changed lanes like all the other cars and zoomed past. Afterward, I realized that it was a Geo Metro pulling a LARGE sailboat.

Have you ever seen a Geo Metro? Geo Metros are not supposed to pull anything. I’ve seen a lot of Metros that had a hard time pulling the passengers in the back seat. But what they are really NOT supposed to pull are gigantic sailboats down the center of the freeway.

After we passed the outfit, I started to laugh. I actually started to laugh uncontrollably. It was one of the funniest things I have ever seen!  I decided I had to see it again and snap some photos. We slowed down and pulled over to the right lane to wait for it to pass. Slow and steady, it came back from behind cruising at a healthy 48 MPH.

Not only was the Metro pulling the boat, it was pulling it at a legal speed, 3 MPH above the posted freeway minimum of 45 MPH.

This leads me to the title of this post. Rethink Possible.

Next time there is something in your life, something that you are NOT supposed to be able to do, or something you don’t consider yourself capable of doing, envision this.

These people are just doing it anyway. Driving their Metro, on the freeway, in the center lane, towing a sailboat. They don’t care. They don’t let their life circumstances stop them. They want to sail, so they sail. End of story.

There is a lot of hope to be gained from this photo. If these people had waited until they had a large truck to move this boat, they wouldn’t have sailed that day. Let’s be like these people and make the most of what we DO have.

To close I thought I’d leave you with this. This is certainly what these people were listening to, windows down, in their Geo Metro.

Christopher Cross always says it best! With views like this, how could you put off sailing for one more second!

    So funny! I cannot believe that Metro could pull a sailboat on the freeway. My friend had a Metro in high school and we’d have to turn off the A/C when we went up the slightest incline.
