I am quite a bit higher but if I didn't have a solid COLA'd pension I would be down to at least 50% equities.

Well, you could stop hanging out at that Wahoo Saloon. It might help.

FWIW, I have run FireCalc with varying stock/bond ratios.

Interestingly, the best survival rate was in the 60/40 to 50/50 area with no big difference between the two ratios. I might end up with more $$'s to spend (or for my heirs) if I had 70/30, but at the risk of a few more years where my plan fails and I run out of money.

Going below 50/50 had no benefit in my situation. YMMV.
