Melinda had to go to Silverthorne, so saved me 36 miles, and I started day 16 about 1545 near milepost 105 of Colorado route 9. I made 9 more miles under my own power by 1724, making 45 miles for day 16, and starting day 17 at mp114. A headwind, and the end of the paved shoulder, both came up in less than a mile. But by 2300 I'd made it into Kremmling, and sniffed out the Rocky Mountain Bar and Grill on national route 40. The last milepost I remember seeing on route 9 was 138.
This bar may be a dive, but they play good hard rock and they have one decent brew on tap, Widmer's Drop Top Amber Ale. I'm starting my 3rd pint.
