I've read the RP info a couple of times now, but am still confused on how the RP's are organised.

For example, the article says Racy Retiree (the aggressive one). The first withdrawal will be $8K (or 8%), with the remaining $92K invested entirely in the FF...When I look at the total cost of the FF in the Racy RP, I get $93,638 (purchase prices on 12/10). Therefore, if you took an $8000 withdrawal before making the purchases, you must have started with $101,638, right ?

I couldn't find an answer on the aim of the portfolio either, do you just want to see how long the funds will last in each portfolio, or is there a set goal (20 years in retirement or something)?

Sorry to be a pain, but I'd like to get a full understanding before the RTR seminar.

Thanks, and I hope you're enjoying your semi-retirement,
