My question now is, should I dump the guaranteed interest into something more agressive? I'm 32 and figure to be working for quite some time yet and am not averse to the ups and downs of the market.

Yeah, I would dump the guaranteed interest. It's just my opinion, but I also would dump the international fund, since you already have tons of international diversification in your large and mid-cap funds. You've got a long way to go. Unless you are planning on retiring within the next 7 to 10 years, I wouldn't put anthing in guaranteed interest. After all, some of your funds already hold back 4% to 10% in short term paper, so why put another 8% of your money to sleep. Again, this is just an idea, but it allowed me to retire 3 years ago at 49. Of course, the decision is up to you, and it looks like you already have taken control of your destiny, so stick with your gut.
