Oil Everywhere

I have been doing a lot of research recently, trying to find the source of my oil leak. It is dripping on the passenger side right bellow the IC boot. It is soaking my cooler lines with oil then dripping down onto the driveway when it sits for a day or more. I still live with my parents and getting tons of crap from the old man about my FORD leaving a 3 foot oil stain on his chevy driveway. Is there anyway all of that oil could be coming from a crack in the boot ? I have also read on here the ccv mod might be able to fix this ? It is my first winter with the truck and didnt start leaking until it started dropping below freezing. Around Oct. I need to get it fixed soon, before I have to start parking in the street. Thanks for taking the time read and any advice. Josh

I tried to attatch photos not sure if they worked.

The crank case vents into tht intake, saturating everything in the system. I'd do the ccv mod. And also clean it up really really good to be sure that's the only leak

My Samsung SGH-I997 made me send this.
