Media storage for overseas vacation, equipment care in high heat?

I'll be in Amman, Jordan for 6 weeks this summer and am bringing:

  • Nikon D5100
  • Nikkor 40mm (w/ hood)
  • Nikkor 55-300mm (w/ hood)
  • B+W Kaesemann CP filter w/ adapter ring
  • Slik 700DX tripod

Media storage: I won't have access to a computer. What is another option for transferring shots? I'll be shooting A LOT and only have a 2GB SD card right now. Should I just get a bunch of cheap cards as backups? A compact device that can substitute for a computer until I return home?
Equipment care: I'll be in 90° weather for several hours at a time on a regular basis. Humidity will vary and I won't always be able to find shade. What precautions should I take? I found a nice white camera bag but that's it.
Budget is TIGHT. A $100 total is pushing it.
