    What reason do you have to think that there is a unique way to continue this?

    May not be a unique way, but I think he just wants the simplest or any way. Either way it stumps me.

    Try the sequence 14,23,28,34,42,? At least it has an answer (particularly for NYC residents).

    This is an old problem. Here's the answer

    10, 9, 60, 90, 70, 66, 314, Kermit, 7, 2, 2, 19, 43, Wyoming, 14343, 22, 43, 44, 1.654342, the Larch, 22, 23, 24, 0, 5, ....

    The pattern should now be obvious.
