Wow, thanks for the TR! It was a pleasure to read. One question: did the fact that you were diving/in a submarine have any affect on your flight later that day? When I was in CUN they wouldn't let us go on a BOB (personal mini-sub/scooter thing) if we had a flight withing 6 hours.

scuba diving is different and would have been an issue.
This was a pressurized submarine, so it was just like going in an airplane and no issues.
Always use an Amex, you'll thank me one day.

I was in Aruba the end of August. We did have TSA for the American customs and it was great since the other part had a huge line. As for the lounge, you didn't miss anything. Dingy chairs and the only kosher stuff was sodas and chips. Oh yeah, they had a bottle of booze hanging upside down on the wall.

Why do people mask themselves in TRs? Do they think that they are so important that people will seek them out?

I think it's more just that they are not comfortable posting pictures of themselves on the Internet. If you'd like to post one, feel free to change your avatar to one of yourself. If not, res ipsa loquitur.

Great TR.  Appreciate your taking the time to write it up.

I know there was discussion of  your identity as Chabad/Lubavich.

My question (and I don't think anyone asked, but I apologize if I missed): are you related to the ShwarmaBobs?
