  • I don’t know about anyone else, but this morning my itunes wouldn’t update TRN’s most recent podcast episode because it said:

    “Trail Runner Nation >> Podcasts – l Trail Runner Nation” does not seem to be a valid Podcast URL.
    Please check that you have entered the correct URL and try again.

    Has anyone else seen this messege?

  • Jared & Nicklaus Thank you for the notice. WE have recently upgraded Servers. We are experiencing a few issues along the way. Our Web Ninja Tim is working on a solution.
    Thank you for your help

  • (Disclaimer…like Dominic, I am a certified, or certifiable, Engineer)

    The 2-legged Imperial Walkers from Star Wars are called “AT-AT’s” (All Terrain Armored Transport). The 2-legged versions are called AT-ST’s (All Terrain Scout Transport). Yes, my nerd status has been confirmed! See below:

  • I was aware of the AT-ST’s but thought the example that Dominic was portraying was for faster movement not armored “walking”.

    • Actually, after listening to Dominic’s discussion again, Kevin’s post of the AT-ST’s is the correct answer because of the mention of the planet Hoth. The Kaadu were on the planet Naboo!

  • Curt and Kevin – you guys are crazy nerds! I wanna run with you guys – I may be able to keep up with you two wearing your Boba Fett costumes 🙂

    The official winner is Kevin. The correct answer is the AT-ST (All-terrain, scout transport). Curt, according to Wiki, the AT-ST were featured in “Empire Strikes Back” – on the planet Hoth, but also in “Return of the Jedi” on Nabu.

    Both of you nerds NEED some Performance Enhancing Kokopellis! (by the way, I am a HUGE Star Wars fan – can’t wait for the new trilogy) Email me your addresses and I will shoot them out.

    Don – Star Wars is a Science Fiction movie series that began in the late 70’s 😉

    • Hey thanks for being generous with the answer, Scott. For the record, I am far from being a “Trekkie” …just a big movie fan…I worked in theaters through high school and college! Email forthcoming.

    • Haha! My wife had a serious eye-roll when she read this thread over my shoulder this morning!

      Curt…for what it’s worth, I would have sent half the PEK’s to you anyways…

      Scott…email coming. Thanks!

      All… another great podcast. Listened to it again this morning on my run, and (like always) picked up a few things I missed the first time around. Keep it up!
