Re: smokey 4.6l
How long have you noticed the blue smoke for? I imagine at least a month as you mentioned you took some long trips. Now that I think about your problem more, it may be a plenum problem and/or a bad EGR valve. If you haven't replaced the PCV valve in a while it'd be good practice to do so.
