Pretty cushy spot compared to most. It'll be hotter than hell, but having your own room will be great. Just bank all that extra pay. You'll be suprised how much money you can save if you don't spend it on dumb stuff.
On any deployment, even a small percentage of your pay MUST be spent on dumb stuff when possible
I was Aus Army for 10 years. My wife once sent me these delicious anchovy stuffed olives, unfortunately the bottles broke enroute so they left the package to dry out somewhere and sent it to me, there were a couple of writing pens in there, they smelt like anchovies for the rest of the tour lol.
