BLM LTVA for Summer

Gosh, I'm confused. I read somewhere recently that there were BLM LTVA areas for summer camping. I googled it and this is what I found:
Long Term Visitor Area Permits - Bishop Field Office, Bureau of Land Management, California

Hope that link works. I've read many blog entries of folks who were boondocking in the Bishop area. This web site states"From the first Saturday of March until November 1st, (paraphrased here) people who camp more than 14 day on Bishop Office BLM lands must stay in designated campgrounds & purchase a LTVA permit.

Is this something new? Is there a way around this? The boondocking out in the eastern Sierras looked too good to be true. Maybe it is...

Thanks in advance for helping me clear up my confusion.
Dawn

You probably don't want to boondock near Bishop until Nov 1. It's just now getting cool enough to comfortably boondock there. Just a couple of weeks ago the temps were in the 90's during the day. In the summer it's in the 100's. You can camp up in the mountains but that's all restricted to campgrounds only and as you might guess, it's crowded with people looking to get out of the heat.

Thank you, Dan. That makes perfect sense to me! Safe travels!
