On the road: Shannon NeSmith drives with purpose. View a new 1 in One Hundred Million video:
Where some people commute to work, Shannon NeSmith commutes for work. Hauling up to 18,000 pounds of cargo at a time, Shannon carries everything from military equipment to log flume boats in her 18-speed big rig. “I call each new load an adventure” she says. “You never know what you’re gonna get next.” And for Shannon, that’s true in more ways than one. She’s learned firsthand that you never know what’s in store around the next corner … and it’s that sense of excitement and adventure that keeps her on the road and the odometer rolling.
