If you allocate a portion in Real Estate, Precious Metals (and I personally include 10% in dividend energy stocks that are beaten down) and allow for Municipal or even corporate debt, and since you have ex ante bonds returns (when held to maturity) the SAFE withdrawl rate can be much better than the % mentioned.

would you mind elaborating on:

a) % allocations with vanguard fund names, and

b) Safe withdrawal rates given your prescribed allocations

c) references, links for me to review?

thank you!
