I'd love to but May 1st is a Thursday...
...also- Village Creek is a bit of a hike. I was looking at an alternative I could suggest and what about the Colorado River in Columbus? The old 71 bridge to Beason's Park is only about 6.3 miles. That could make for a pretty leisurely day of paddling & fishing. It's only about 45 minutes for you Katy folk and an hour-fifteen or so for me from the Upper East Side.
Are you willing to lead this one? If so, I will modify the trip description this weekend.
And I agree with Wormdrowner, May 10th is a great choice for dates.
