I was relatively late into digital, shooting slide film until about four years ago when I bought a 5D2. (This Christmas I replaced it with a 5D3). Learning with slide film (even more than print film) made me a better photographer not only due to being more selective but also learning how to read light and nail exposures. Slide film has zero tolerance for over or under exposure, so you really had to know how to expose.
However, I certainly never took 100 rolls on a trip like you did! Usually a week trip would be ten or twelve rolls. Of course I shoot many more frames with digital, but still nowhere as many as other people. Lately I am deciding to slow down even more because I delete so many I am learning what is the point?
The one area where digital completely surpasses film is in high ISO capabilities. I can get very usable shots at iso 3200 and higher, which is unthinkable with slide (or even print) film.
