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

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.
