Bernicke Spending Model

I have been playing with FIRECALC to get a handle on how many $$ are really required to retire. I have used a "traditional" inflated spending model and I have also tried the Bernicke spending model. There is a huge difference in the results between the two. Personally, I believe the real spending model (at least for me) will be somewhere in between. Is there anyway to run FIRECALC on a custom spending model that I put together that fits my situation?

Look at the Other Income/Spending tab. You can make 3 corrections to customize your spending after retirement. I'm not aware of any way to make more granular corrections.
