Everyone needs to find their comfort level with stock / bond ratio. 75/25 is on the aggressive side for your age. John Bogle recommends your age in bond percentage or age minus 10. Having pensions mitigates this, but you'll need to decide by how much.
Yes, I have achieved work / life balance.
Hey! You're retiring to my part of the country! I was born & raised in the area you're talking about, and although I'm not a golfer, I know you're gonna love it! I was just in Southern Pines/Pinehurst/Aberdeen a couple of weeks ago. Enjoy.
