    Need help with setting a variable using actionscript

      So I am trying to import in XML and this is working fine, But once in flash I need to reference this variable in a later script. Here is what I got.

      function loadXML(loaded) {
      if (loaded) {

      /////this is the variable, which is working, it pulls the info from the xml document properly.
      var node1 = this.firstChild.childNodes[0].childNodes[0].firstChild.nodeValue;

      ////another variable, etc...
      var node2 = this.firstChild.childNodes[0].childNodes[1].firstChild.nodeValue;

      /////when traced it outputs the proper value.


      ////////does not work here though.

      xmlData = new XML();
      xmlData.ignoreWhite = true;
      xmlData.onLoad = loadXML;

      var latmin = 37;
      var latmax = 41;
      var lonmin = -109;
      var lonmax = -102;
      this.geoPlotter_gp.setRange(latmin, latmax, lonmin, lonmax);
      this.geoPlotter_gp.addNode(40.48, -107);

      ////////////////This is where I need to now use the variables defined above//////////////

      this.geoPlotter_gp.addNode(node1);// Boulder
      this.geoPlotter_gp.addNode(node2);// Denver

      /////any ideas all? I am sure this is something simple...I am just overlooking something.
