First of all, no more road trips until this is fixed. Jack the front end up and test each of the front wheels for movement top to bottom, and left to right. You will find that at least one wheel is just about falling off. You need to replace at least the wheel bearing and probably the hub for that wheel. Ideally, replace both front wheel bearings. I have no idea that you can or should do this yourself. If you can, go for it, but if I were you I'd have it done.
