"Consumed" by Grayson Schaffer - Outside

So this crazy-ass South African dude Hendrik Coetzee was one of the best whitewater kayakers in the world and lived a life straight out of a Hunter S. Thompson novel. The title of the story,"Consumed," is a metaphor for how some of the most dedicated people in the world lead their lives. But its also not a metaphor for what happened when this guy met a crocodile on the Nile River.
