Another error - Null object reference

I'm getting this error when I try to preview my code:

TypeError: Error #1009: Cannot access a property or method of a null object reference.
at therun4life_fla::MainTimeline/frame1()

I don't know what it could be. I looked over my code several times, and I can't find anything. Maybe it isn't sticking out because I put the code in. All of this code is in the first frame. Any idea what it could be?

Little bit of a long code to read here, so add some trace calls within your code to detect which line causes the null reference error.

Don't you see a line number in the error mesage?
