'farther' instead of 'further'

Same difference.

I was taught that farther is used for physical distance and further for metaphorical distance.

I'm going to go with the 'dictionary usage note'.

Although some usage guides insist that only farther should be used for physical distance ( We walked farther than we planned ), farther and further have been used interchangeably throughout much of their histories.

And dictionary entry

further
-adverb
1. at or to a greater distance; farther: I'm too tired to go further.

–adjective
4. more distant or remote; farther: The map shows it to be further than I thought.

The line between reality and metaphor is often drawn in pencil...

On a less abstract note, I added a "to". "Now turn your right" didn't seem right.
