But why do I want to route my traffic my interstate? What the heck is the 
point of me saying I want my posits to go down I-90?

Every time I get on a new interstate I need to change my path? What happened 
to relay, wide or wide2-2 working everywhere?

I'm in Iowa. I live within a few miles of I-35, but once I drive 20 miles west 
I'm out of range of digipeaters that serve I-35 and now there is no 
interstate by me. What do I do?

I must be missing something, because this makes no sense to me.
