The Department of the Interior governs both the NPS and the BLM, the Dept. of Ag. governs USNF so there are a lot of entities involved. No clear answers will be available until the Congress makes a decision.

The party currently in power is the party most often in charge of large cities and urban areas. Rural areas tend to be marginalized when they are in power. And it is human nature that when you regain power, you use it to benefit those who got you there. If they shut down all but essential services, those rural folks will bear the brunt as being those other people.
Probably the best way to predict how this goes would be to look at what the prior administration did. It's many of the same ideologue's so their approach will likely be similar.
If I recall correctly many BLM areas were closed off, along with the parks and campgrounds.

Wrong again KH. During last shutdowns I had full access to BLM lands in Nevada and northern CAL for my boondocking camping to my favorite places. Except for a few of their developed campsites nothing may be closed as is impossible to do as anyone knows from their experience of accessing the western BLM with their thousands of main roads into and thru the BLM lands for use of ranchers, miners, farmers, homesteaders, etc. No gates and no patrolling rangers I have never seen in 10 years of camping there in remote areas. Shish.

Main gravel Roads are maintained by the county.

Has and hasn't in the past. Depends on that Forest’s manager.

You get what you vote for. I refuse to let politicians of any stripe determine how I live my life or determine when or where I go. Look up the definition of 'Federalism'.

That's true BLM land would be just about impossible to close with exceptions of their semi developed camps.

One blogger I know who is a full-time RVer was staying a lengthy period of time on a camping site on a lake managed by the Corps of Engineers (COE) during the shutdown of campgrounds in 2020 because of the high infection rate of Covid at that time. The Corps did not make them leave when the Corps was asked if they could stay, and they were even allowed to extend their reservation. Full-timers had a bad time during that period because they live on the road, have no "sticks and bricks" home to go to, and the campgrounds were shutting down during that high infectious period.

Your statement is just another one of McConnell's many double standards w no basis in reality. It's going to take 10 GOP senators to raise the debt ceiling - neither party can wash their hands of it should the .gov shutdown or default.
You are 100% wrong about that. The funding and the debt ceiling could have been attached to to the $3.5T reconciliation package currently pending and passed with only Dem votes. Nancy and Chucky decided against that cause they wanted Rep's to vote "for" it. All in all it's politics as usual, the good of the people doesn't come into play.
