Fred Noble lived life full of life-threatening adventure. He skied in the films of Warren Miller, established the Columbia River Gorge as a windsurfing mecca, para-glided throughout the world and along the way had many near death experiences. In 2011 he received the devastating news he had ALS, Lou Gehrigs disease. Prognosis was he had only a few years to live. The usual life expectancy is in the range of 3 to 5 years. Fred skipped the denial stage and went straight to acceptance vowing to make every minute he had left count. There was no time for self pity. He embraced life as he always had with a positive can do attitude during his final years made the first ever sit-ski descent in the Bugaboo Mountains of Canada and paragliided above the Oregon coast after he had already lost use of his legs, Fred retained his infectious sense of humor. This documentary is about living and making the most of life. It is a positive message that we can all make the most of what we have and live life to the full even if facing a terminal illness. This is not a documentary glorifying an adventurer, it is a heartfelt story of a man raised in an orphanage who become an inspiration to everyone he met. We hope this inspiration continues through this documentary.
