I have never been to Melbourne but let me be the first here to give you a nice "WELCOME TO FLORIDA!!!"

Let me also be the first to warn you, though....
It will def take a while for your body to get used to the heat this time of year. Your blood needs a few months to "thin out". I moved down to Naples about 8 years ago (way south!) .. in APRIL (!!) and I felt really weak and sick often. (July is certainly gonna feel worse than it would in April prob!!) I would feel like passing out often. So drink lots and lots of water to keep yourself hydrated!!!
It's gonna probably be rough at first, but nothing is a picnic right?

I know that the above sounds pretty corny but whatever.. just trying to offer some advice. Take it or leave it... but trust me.

I'm sure you will love it down here... I am glad I moved!!!

OH.. and GOOD LUCK finding tracks and stuff to occupy your fun time!!!

Dan-d lives in Mims, which is just north of melbourne, as well as Bob, who lives between Titusville and Merritt Island

there's quite a few west of ya down 528 ( the Bee-Line ) in Orlando, i'm just north of Orlando but we allways seem to migrate over to Dan's in Mims for his g2g's

and if ya need parts, goto www.cfm.com they are located in Longwood, which is a suburb of Orlando and Hector has most anything ya see on the site in stock for pick-up

as for tracks, they have auto-x all over the place, and Bithlo is prolly the closest dragstrip and is right off hwy. 50 between Titusville and Orlando

and as far as fun is concerned, this is Florida, where everyone comes to vacation and spring break and not to mention all the theme parks, if ya can't find something to occupy your time and peg your fun meter, you're beyond our help

l8r, John
