FARGO — After 72 years on the planet, some folks prefer to kick back, relax and enjoy retirement.

Bill Worth would rather take a hike — up Mount Everest, that is.


Worth, who turns 72 next month, is now climbing the world’s tallest mountain with his 28-year-old daughter, Carolyn. When he’s not scaling mountains, Worth owns Worth Construction and lives with his wife, Cynthia, in Fargo.
