I think both further and farther are good scaffolding.  According to my 
usage dictionary farther "is often used where physical distance is 
referred to."  Since further is also used as a verb meaning to advance, 
I think I like it a little better here.  I'm enjoying my free time 
today!  : )  -- Thomas
