I found this forum and FIRECalc after ten years into retirement. Obviously I was er - just practicing before then - .

In fact I really did have a no. 2 pencil and a Vanguard Retirement Workbook in 1992.

heh heh heh - also cross check with ORP once in a while - and then spend that which I think prudent.
