Calipers do stick on occasion.  Do you know what hot brakes smell like?  Its kind of hard to describe, but does have a characteristic smell.

Have you looked for anything you might have 'picked up' on the highway, like bits of plastic bag/wrapper, etc.?  Maybe a trip to a high-pressure carwash is in order to clean the wheels and exposed parts would help to see if the problem is with the car or something else.
