Default oil leak...looking for some help

usually i dont make to big a deal out of an oil leak, but this ones a bit of a problem...i check my oil every few days to find the dipstick dry. I add a quart and life is good...for a few DAYS.

the leak is coming from somewhere on the driver side of the block. I thought the oil fill tube may be the issue but Brad at Perry hooked me up with a new o-ring for it. While i was replacing that, the two hoses that go into the cylinder head directly behind the fill tube got a pair of clamps to insure they wouldnt leak. None of this helped at all.

ive thought of using that UV additive, but that requires a full oil change after and (1) im a broke ass college kid and (2) all my tools and such for doing an oil change are in Jersey at my parents house.

any advise on problem areas to check first. Or even better someone in HR that is will to spend some time under my hood searching would be greatly appreciated.
