I am fully invested in tax deferred stock index funds ($1.2m with Vangard) and am contemplating at least partial
retirement in 2000. Because I am looking at a 20+ year retirement period, I am proposing to remain fully invested and
take periodic asset allocation withdrawals for annual expenses. Any info or opinions on this proposed strategy?

The reading I have done indicates that you get a better survival rate with some debt investments. I would think of three years living expenses in "cash" and not selling stock if the market takes a dip since you have some cash reserves.
