Not sure that I really see anything wrong with being completely in stocks right now when you won't be touching that money for 20 years.

The worst of the stock beat down has (hopefully) already occurred. Interest rates are at an all time low. When they start climbing again (as they will) the bond funds are going to suffer.

I'd just keep loading up on stocks. Even if they're flat for several more years, they'll match bonds or only lose by a little, plus you'll be accumulating a lot more shares that will give you better long term results. Also, if inflation really hits hard, stocks are a better place to be than bonds.
