Farther vs. Further - Writing tip of the day
I believe there is a scene in Finding Forester that will further clarify the distinction between the two words.
Farther: deals strictly with physical distance
Further: usually deals with metaphorical distance but can also be used for physical distance.

“It seems that 79 per cent of smartphone users check for their devices within 15 minutes of waking up. A majority - 62 per cent - don't even wait 15 minutes, and grab their phones immediately... On average, we visit the Facebook app or the site 13.8 times during the day, for two minutes and 22 seconds each time... That's roughly a fifth of all the time we spend communicating; it's only slightly less time than we spend texting. On weekends, we check Facebook more than we text. ”—(via Daily Mail)

That’s just one of the things that should worry Mark Zuckerberg, I think.”—Mathew Ingram | Why I unfriended almost everyone
