29 days, unless on the 29th day he doesn't jump right out, then it would be 30 by the description you gave.


No, try
28 days

he starts the second day one foot up
he starts the third day two feet up up
...
he starts the 28th day 27 feet up
and his jump takes him to the top

where he is eaten by a waiting stork

Hee hee, nice one! Thanks for the correction Geezer
