Let's say I'm driving a long way home from work and have lost track of where I am in relation to home. I suddenly notice the exit sign for the city of Van Nuys, which is 45 minutes from home. I get surprised because I thought I've driven a lot farther and should've been much closer to home. Are these idiomatic to say?

"I'm only at Van Nuys?!"

"I've only hit it this far?!"

"I've only made it this far?!"

"I've only made/hit it to Van Nuys?!"

"I've only made it as far as Van Nuys?!"

"I've only come this far?!"

Is there another more common saying?
