Remarks: The Joost in Meer is very popular by reefers from all over Europe. I guess that's because this truckstop belonged in the early days to the BP truckstop chain. The BP was in the eighties and nineties very popular by the European truckers. You could find them anywhere in Europe. BP sold almost all of their truckstops, and although the Joost at Hazeldonk is only a kilometre away, Joost took over this truckstop too. Guess where I took this pic......?
