WHAT IS CAUSING THE ENGINE TO OVERHEAT TWO TIMES IN 4 MONTHS?

First overheating was in Aug. 2011. Cracked one of the heads(other one was okay). I had the entire cooling system rebuilt: new radiator, hoses, water pump, etc. It ran good for a few months. Then in Dec. It started leaking coolant. The heads seem to be okay but one head gasket was blown indicating overheating again.
Before this happened in august I had taken road trips(from Dallas to Iowa and Colorado), and even around town, with no problems. Just wondering what may have caused it to overheat again.
