my opinion...

I would pay off the dept. Your loan at 10% compared to contributions in 2001 earning 10 or 11%, you'll be breaking even. If your loan rate increases, you're in the red.

You've got a nice chunk earning you money right now... how long do you want that dept to linger?

Maybe you can borrow from your 401k to pay off your loan, then pay yourself back with interest...???
