signs of a blown headgasket ?

the jeep is a 95 yj with a 4.0L inline 6. is it possible to blow a head gasket but not skip and run like crap? the reason im asking this is because it keeps losing antifreeze somewhere? its not leaking from the water pump, thermostat, radiator or puke bottle so i cant figure out where its going?

inside or underneath? inside the cab is bone dry, and no visible leaks outside either

Possibly a pin hole in a hose? Depending on where it is spraying, you may not see any thing wet.
just a thought, had the same thing happen to me and it was a heater hose that sprayed straight down and cleared everything under the hood. No puddles on the garage floor etc. Had to watch as the engine warmed up, as soon as the thermostat opened, there it was.
