At the top left of the editor there are forward/back buttons that 
traverse visit history.  The marks are set automatically, so there are 
ways to visit 100 lines down that will set a mark and also some that 
won't (like just moving the scroll bar).  For some cases, if the caret 
is still at the previous location, just typing a key and then delete or 
undo is a quick way to get back.  Another idea that is sometimes useful 
is to open the same editor in another split so you can see both places 
at once.
