Train travel is one of my all time favorite ways to get from point A. to point B. ( thanks, middle school algebra). One of the best parts of the trip is deciding what types of edibles to bring along to nibble upon while en-route. This particular journey to Chicago called for pumpkin seeds, smoked kielbasa ( I love stinking up the train car with the smell of Eastern European smoked meats), hard boiled eggs (laid fresh from a very talented South City St. Louis chicken), Afghani flatbread, a hunk of pepperjack cheese, butter and mustard. Alllllllllll abord!

Part of what I like to call the “Steve Siwinski Travel Series.” Each time I leave Jefferson City, I create a graphic to celebrate. This image chronicles my September, 2011 trip to Southern California. The plate is inspired by vintage California State license plates.
