Ticking sound?

Sir, In the last 2 weeks my motor has taken on even more of a mechanical sound. A fellow 911 owner says it sounds like it could be a valve that needs adjustment. The valves were adjusted 2 years/8,500 miles ago so I'm wondering if this is a possibility or could it be something else? I'm not using/leaking any oil but I'm a little leery of driving the car when it makes that sound. If it is an out of adjustment valve/valves can I damage the engine by driving it until the car goes into storage again this winter?
