I was not aware that coconuts could be used to fuel a meteor back into space...could this method also be used to launch overdue-garbage into space?
because that I could use (bin is too far away)

Day 14, 99.9% into space. It then took me until Day 19 to get back there. =(
14 days without any boosters :) fun, but requires a healthy dose of luck to just HAVE yellow fireflies on your way up, you might not get any for as much as 20% of your ascent. Note that at 90% and upwards there is nothing, so you'll fail to get a boost, like in Hedgehog Launch 1, where all jumpboards are below 4000 with a goal of 4500. So preserve fuel like tsenaku said, it seems that there's a top speed in ascension, so this strategy works pretty nice. Or get a booster and use it on your last 10% of ascension.

12 days 17938. The key is to save fuel by:
A) cutting the engine. (accelerate and let the plane glide till it stops going up and then accelerate again)
B) not burning any fuel after getting fireflies.
