[s-cars] leaking coolant

I sustained a coolant leak sometime yesterday and have yet to track it down. The coolant leak indicator clued me into it. I only need drive several miles before it comes on. When I go to check the coolant tank it is always about ¾ empty (I imagine this is where the sensor is.) Then I refill.
Anyway, I see no detectable leak under the car. Should I check for the leak while the car is hot and running? Are there any common leak areas like the coolant bottle or the hoses running to the bottle? I don't have a compression tester either. I need to go to Tahoe tomorrow. I don't want to fill the trunk with bottles of anti-freeze for the trip (I've convinced my wife I drive a "fine" automobile).
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
