HELP!!! Bogging down on the Highway!!!!

Every so often I make the 1hr trip from school back to my parents house. This trip is on the highway and i travle at 75mph or so. The past few times I have made the trip I have had to pull over to the side of the road because it seems like my samurai was missing on one cylender. The samurai starts to slow down and I cant maintain a speed over 60mph. I get this unburnt fuel smell as well. To fix this problem I twisted the ignition wires on the distributor cap and it was all better.

Both times this happened to me it was after a rain storm. Could it be corrosion forming between the wire and the cap? I dont see how this can happen unless it is the humidity in the air that is causeing the corrosion. How can I fix this problem because it is kind of dangerous pulling over to the side of the road when the other traffic is flying by at 70+mph. Thanks in advance.

I would replace the cap, rotor, and wires, and use MSD's silicone spark plug boot sealer....I have used it to waterproof my rigs, and love it! Make sure and use a little dielectric grease on the wire to cap connections. It will prevent corrosion in the first place.. If you have corrosion starting, its time to replace!
