Greetings, Pablum, and welcome. You said in part:

<<I've left out some details, but this post is long enough. I'll be glad to fill in any blanks should anyone request them.

I know there are valuable opinions out there, so please blast away! >>

LOL. Yeah, I'd say you left out a lot. Too much for any meaningful comments by anyone. Still, I'm glad you also posted this query on The Retire Early Homepage board because I'm sure you will get some useful tips there.

You hope for a $625K portfolio in six years from which you wish to take at least $35K per year. Understand that income is about 5.6% of your portfolio, and that's a rate at the upper limits of a sustainable withdrawal rate to ensure your portfolio lasts as long as you do. I suggest you play with the withdrawal rate spreadsheet you will find at the Retire Early site at That will give you a great idea of what you can do.
