Your plan sounds reasonable to me.
You are right to beware of "financial planners" selling load funds. Very few outperform Vanguard index funds and as you increase the time span, ever fewer.
If you convert your 401k to an IRA, you will have more choices of stocks and funds. I assume that the decision to leave your money with the current plan administrator does not preclude you rolling to an IRA later--like when you reach age 59 1/2.
Best wishes, Chris
