I don't think tough even gets close. Sorry to think "his kind" will be very rare going forward.

25 or so years ago a guy up in the NW part of the country was building a house by himself and was clearing the lot of some big arse trees. As fate would have it out there all alone tree falls on him pins leg. This cat takes a 3" pocket knife and saws leg of at the hip. And lives to tell about it.

Aron Ralston is my good friends cousin. Iíve hung out with him a few times. He cut his arm off with a knife, movie 127 hours was about him.

"Tough old bugger" is right....that mold has been put away, not many of todays newer generation would have the sack to do this.

Old farmers are some of the smartest and most logical thinkers there are.Probably had that old buck on his belt just in case somebody showed up with cheesecake or he needed to cut off a body part.

aye

I had a great uncle that lost part of his arm in an auger. Did not slow him down he farmed well into his late 80. Hehe Grampa was the same way 90 years old and still comming out to help. Your biting your tongue wanting to tell him to stay at home. But he was at home.
Horses and plows, then little open air tractors, the wind/dust/heat never bothered them. Hell if my auto steer stops working Iím screwed lol

the older generations new the meaning of a hard days work

How do you cut thru a leg bone with a pocket knife?? Especially if on the verge of passing out? Musta been a Benchmade knife!

No one here, of any age, has the sack to do that.

The only way it it works is with a compound fracture or crushed bone.
