I would move my 401K to an IRA. I think you would have more convienence as well as better control.

If cruising = out of touch a lot of the time, you might want to use Vanguard. Good place for index funds, very low fees and a good reputation for customer service.

Discount brokerages like Schwab or Waterhouse are also good choices. Schwab, especially, has plenty of local offices, useful for sorting out problems in person.

Make sure you do a direct transfer of the funds from the 401k custodian to your IRA.
