Getting close to retirement (~2 years) and am wary of a double dip recession in the next 6-12 months. I have enough to retire now, and want to move my 401k into less risky funds that will have a lower downside potential - what should I consider? My top choice is FXNAX (Fidelity US Bond Index), or maybe a money market fund - but I'm not too saavy with this stuff. Any help would be appreciated!

Also have no useful advice, but I'm saving crazy so that I can get out of this rat race (non-consulting, part-time, and/or retire early). I too have nearly 35 years until full retirement age.
