This past weekend was one of my favorite business trips of the year: Leen’s Lodge in Grand Lake Stream, Maine. It is formally called the Shadow Federal Reserve & Fishing Trip, but informally its known as Camp Kotok. (I think this was my 7th one).
The amusing thing is I know all of these folks — John Silvia, Stu Hoffman, Philippa Dunne, Jim Bianco, Dave Rosenberg, etc. — socially. We always have good discussions about important issues, but the beauty part about this trip is its mostly hanging around, catching fish, imbibing, etc. (Note the WSJ refers to the 2013 Camp Kotok wine table. Yes, there was some wine served — most of it was outstanding, and there was no shortage of good stuff).
